After Sophie left, the Circle decided to go and fix the command station.
Hai'li sent a beam to fix the command console, but there was a pile of rotting fish in the way, which was actually some kind of fae entity? Either way, it found being stabbed with cold iron to be quite painful. Light's Valor told it to move out of the way, when Sophie told it to listen, LV immediately commanded it to kill Sophie. It destroyed Sophie's current doll and then LV commanded it to go attack her boyfriend.
During the chat with Sophie the Circle learned several things.
1. She promised her boyfriend she'd stay since "he's looking for a way to fix things"
2. he promise he'd be grateful if she helped
3. she also mentioned he can't go to Lethe, that it doesn't work on him
4. she also claimed Xian Lin's aura was confused
Marilee traded on of the toys she stole for a dagger Sophia had that was made of "hope" and Sophie didn't mind losing it since there was a lot of hope here to work with. Marilee (questionably) decided to "sheathe" in inside of her. In the midst of things, Hai'li decided to tell the manse that DS's permission was needed for full system integration.
The Circle followed Sophie's doll to the shrine, where they found the friendly neighborhood Sidereal working on a Sorcerous Working that was beyond his means to complete. While antagonizing him, he was upset to learn the Jade Prison had been opened since "The Unconquered Sun was supposed to let this stand forever."
After further antagonizing him, telling him he couldn't help the people that were mutated by the Wyld and he definitely wasn't going to help the people who's souls she'd eaten for her dolls, no matter her promises not to hurt the people left, the Sidereal decided to pick a fight.
Sophie turned the doll into a shield to protect the Sidereal.
Marilee stabbed him with her hope dagger, which was quite a blow to the Sidereal. Sophie moved in to help, but DS went to fight her. At the source of the tentacles he found what appeared to be a portal to a play ground. She tried to convince him that he would be happy if he entered, but that worked as well as you might expect.
LV lost control and Kazu had Limit Break and had a mental breakdown. He released the ghosts in his tattoo to fight the little green men that bleed from the "Sophie Shield."
7 turned into a giant brass bunny to attack and Xian Lin attacked with sorcery from the shadows. Eventually the Sidereal was killed and Sophie ran away saying this wasn't fun anymore.
7, who was quite injured in the fight, collapsed as her spell ended and DS went to treat her wounds.
The session ended as Nezri confronted Kazu about WTF he did to the Tepet legions.
